No, UV lights are only effectively on a handful of contaminants and these contaminants have to pass through the light field for a period long enough to be effective. Also, UV lights don’t treat any of the air in the occupied space, nor are they effective on odors or VOCs. It requires that air be returned by the air conditioning system. However, if you have one, we would recommend keeping it in place. If nothing else, it may help to keep the cooling coil in your air conditioning system cleaner.
